Manchester City have turned their attention to the final game of the season after a magnificent achievement on Sunday.

The Blues became the first English club to win the top-flight title in four consecutive seasons after beating West Ham United 3-1 on the Premier League's final day. A Phil Foden brace and second-half Rodri strike either side of Mohammed Kudus' acrobatic effort ensured City wrote their names in the history books.

As always, Pep Guardiola will not be satisfied with just one trophy and will be aiming to add the FA Cup to his silverware on Saturday. Standing in their way are fierce rivals Manchester United, who require a victory to qualify for the Europa League next season.
